About Us

Chapel

The first service in our beautiful chapel was held on Sunday 6th June 1858.Today, over 160 years later, the chapel is still at the heart of school life.

Our Chaplain, The Reverend Steve Bennett, promotes and supports the spiritual dimension of the school, providing an important pastoral contact for pupils, staff and parents alike.
